The complex NMe4[Rh(ox)(CO)2](2)(ox = oxalato) was prepared from NMe4[Rh(ox)(cod)](1)(codcyclo-octa-1,5-diene) by bubbling carbon monoxide and, complex (1) was prepared from Rh2Cl2(cod)2, oxalic acid, and NMe4OH; the solid state structure of (2) consists of infinite chains of metal atoms [Rh Rh Rh 175.01(3)°] with equal rhodium–rhodium distances of 3.243(1)Å, the shortest distance found in a stacked rhodium complex.
